The Secret Life of Mitt-y Romney, aka Pierre Delecto

By Alexandra Petri / The Washington Post

Pierre Delecto stood alone on the burning deck. Smoke rose from the boards, and the ship was sinking. He grabbed the fallen Stars and Stripes, holding it in his beautiful, shapely teeth, and began climbing the rigging. “Be prudent!” the steward yelled. “Pierre, no!” But Pierre was throwing caution to the wind. “Pierre, oui!” he shouted. His strategy was confrontation, verging on spinefulness.

“… Not so fast,” Donald Trump said.

“Hmm?” said Mitt Romney. He blinked across the white tablecloth. For a moment, he did not know where he was. Trump’s mushy, wheedling voice had startled him. Pierre’s defiant shout over the creaking of the burning ship receded and was replaced by ambient jazz and the sound of clinking cutlery.

Trump pushed his chair back, and Romney rushed to follow. He wondered whether this was groveling. He was sure Trump would think so. It seemed maybe he would not be secretary of state after all. Well, then, he would go to Utah, and he would run for Senate. He asked to take the rest of his meal in a doggie bag, for Rafalca, even though she was a horse and not a dog. At least he still had his birthday with family to look forward to.

3. A translation of Pierre Delecto into English could be ...

Peter Delicious, or perhaps even Delicious Peter. Maybe Mitt is wilder than he lets on.

4. Romney is member of a cult and can't be trusted

5. I agree that Romney can't be trusted but it is wrong to say that he is a member of a cult.

Romney can't be trusted because he is Republican who takes part in their manipulative tactics.

He showed that he cannot be trusted at the 2012 debates. He misled people by saying that Obama did not call Benghazi a terrorist attack. He misled people by calling the American Enterprise Institute "non-partisan."

But it isn't right to call Mormons members of a cult or suggest that they can't be trusted.

6. Wow.. you mean because he is LDS? I may have issues with Mormon religion, but a cult? really?

That's just wrong IMO.

?t=4

(Mormon stuff starts at 1:50)

?t=8

The secret handshake in the Temple

A lot more on the LDS crap on the internet for those interested

8. That's the way I see it, mitt is also top bishop in LDS

Would anyone make a Catholic Bishop a Senator? Or, how about making a Ultra-Conservative Rabbi, a Senator? How about making a Supreme Muslim cleric a Senator? So why do we ignore the fact that romney is a top echelon representative of LDS?
